If you’re considering solar panels for your home, the first question you might ask is: do I need to a new roof to go solar? The answer: it depends. In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about replacing your roof before installing solar panels. We’ll cover the different types of roofs and how they impact solar panel installation, as well as some tips on choosing a qualified solar company.
There are three main types of roofs: asphalt shingles, metal roofs, and tile roofs. Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roof in the United States, and they can be replaced without affecting your solar panel installation. Metal roofs are also a popular choice for solar panel installation, but they may require special brackets or clamps to secure the panels. Tile roofs are less common, but they can be replaced without affecting solar panel installation as well.
Choosing the right solar company:
When you’re choosing a solar company or contractor, it’s important to choose one that is experienced in roof replacement as well as solar panel installation.
